This is actually my wife Rose's car, and it's shown in her garage too (see MAXXINE), but since she doesn't hang out on Motortopia much anymore I thought it was time to show the car off in my garage too. It has over 65,000 miles on it, but I try to keep after it both mechanically and cosmetically and I like to think it shows. It's never let us down and it looks like a much newer car. The paint and upholstery still look like new, with the exception of a couple of minor "this's" and "that's" that any 7 year old car will pick up.
4-speed Automatic transaxle
0-60 in about 7.5 seconds

It's 5-door hatchback sedan design was an exclusive among American cars of it's size. It has more interior room (including 4" more rear seat legroom ) than the Malibu sedan of the same series with a correspondingly longer wheelbase while being 5" shorter in overall length.It's back seats can recline up to 15 degrees from their regular upright position It's standard full-width fixed rear-seat sunroof was unique among all cars available at the time.
